Step 15. The A bead you are exiting from Step 14, will be called a bead in this step. Set the bead cluster on it’s side so the all the A beads are on top. The A bead immediately across from bead a, will be called bead b in this step. From the side bead a, pick up a C bead and go enter bead b from the same side of the bead that you are exiting from bead a. The thread will now be exiting bead b. Go through the C bead and through bead a so the thread is exiting the a bead in the same direction from which you started.

Step 17. Attaching the beaded bead to the bracelet. Line up the bracelet and beaded bead on your mat. The closed “V” end of the braclet should be on the left (right for lefties). The side of the beaded bead witth thread exiting the A bead of a 4 bead side unit is facing the end of the bracelet (doesn’t matter which side the thread exits from).

For this step, the bead the thread is coming out of will be called bead 1. Pick up 2A, C, 2A (beads 2-6). Go through the two A end beads of the bracelet (beads 7 and 8), pickup an A bead (bead 9). Go through beads 5, 6, and 7. Pick up bead 10 (substitute shown) and go through the end of bead 11 on the other side of the 4 bead unit. Enter bead 11 from the same side that exited bead 1. Notice your beaded bead is attached on one side of the bead. Repeat this step exiting now from the back of bead 11. Go through bead 11 again, through bead 3-5, these beads will be shared. Continue this path 2-3 times to reinforce, tie off.

Step 16. Weave across to the other side of the cluster with all A beads. Repeat step 15.

Turn you bead cluster to that the C beads are positioned again as in the second photo of Step 14.

Add an A bead between all the A beads on the right side. For a total of 4 beads added and 8 beads on the end of that side. Repeat this step on the other side.

Step 18. Attaching a beaded loop for clasp. If you do not have enough thread on the other end of the braclet to attach a complete beaded loop, tie off the end from the bracelet and a new thread to this end. After adding thread, weave through work following the thread path until you exit one of the A beads on one of the “V” ends. For this step we will call this bead 1.
